Software on Knuth Farms

In today’s agriculture you’re more likely to see a producer with an electronic device in their hand rather than a pitchfork. We still raise the same animals, and grow the same crops, but the way in which we do so has changed. Precision Ag is writing a new chapter in agriculture and it has a digital signature.

From the soil the seed is planted into, to the last kernel put into the bin, a database is tracking it.

Below is a sample of how Knuth Farms is using technology to keep up with the Precision Ag movement.
